Trank 1 Sean Trank Com 350 Dr. Greer 1. What key actions led to the reconsideration of the television ownership rule? Viacom merged with CBS and violated the National Television Station ownership rule and instead of complying with the FCC, they Sued them. The FCC had failed to keep a two year review of the rule and so the court took the side of the plantiff and the result was that the FCC changed the rule in favor of the company from a 35% cap to 45%. 2. What were the positions of the parties involved (i.e., industry)? FOX felt that the rule was void because the FCC was not keeping up with two year reviews. 3. How did the FCC arrive at its ultimate decision regarding TV ownership changes? After seeing that the reviews were ultimately inadequate the Court had the FCC modify the TV ownership rules. Future review shows that 60% of the commercial stations in their sample did not air any local public affair programming.
